This might surprise you, but I have a calendar where I plan out blog topics. Today, I was going to write about chintz fabrics. I tried to do that. I really did. The problem is that I have block print quilts on my mind. Why? Let me start at the beginning.
In this post, I shared my mood board for the main level of our house. Well, that color scheme is not happening. I know, I know. Turns out, I do not love pastel colors for our house 🤷♀️. The fact that I almost never even wear pastel colors should have been a major red flag, but live and learn.
Currently, I am focusing on our living room. I saw this room by Cathy Kincaid and fell in love with the color palette—red,blue,green, and a little purple. It just felt right.
Based on this color scheme, and my personal preferences, I came up with this board for our living room.
As an added bonus, the chintz pictured is one I’ve been eyeing for awhile. It’s nice to be able to incorporate it somewhere. The pattern is called Gaya and it is from Brunschwig & Fils. For those interested, the block print-esque fabric is from Peter Fasano. The pattern is called Persia. It took me two days of internet sleuthing to find that out.
Now that I’ve talked your ear off about our living room, let me tell you how block print quilts came into play. In the inspiration picture, it looks like there is a patterned blanket on the back of the couch. I really like the idea of using a block print quilt to add another layer of pattern.
My entire search literally consisted of me going on Etsy. I’m not lazy—I just found so many great options there.
Alright, I’ve blabbed enough. Let’s get to the good stuff. Links to each quilt are below the gallery.
